As another year comes to a close and we take some time to reflect, refocus and retool for the new year... I encourage everyone to "Level Up" ... credit to Kuba for this turn of phrase:)
What follows is a potpourri of ideas, posts, exercises to assist you on your journey to Leveling Up in 2014!
I saw this on the Holstee Manifesto blog and just loved the simplicity of it:
If you’d like to reflect on the year with us, here are some suggestions: writing a simple timeline from January to December to list major events month by month, looking through your calendars, notebooks, journals, and photos or even using your social media profiles to help bring memories back.
The Holstee team also shared this excellent exercise that I am definitely doing for 2014:
Ask yourself and answer these 3 questions:
- what you would like to start doing in 2014
- what you’d like to stop doing
- what you’d like to continue doing
Find Clarity and Set Powerful Outcomes... Not Resolutions!
"Clarity accounts for probably 80% of success and happiness. Lack of clarity is probably more responsible for frustration and underachievement than any other single factor. Your success in life will be largely determined by how clear you are about what it is you really, really want." - Brian Tracy
The main reason most resolutions don’t work is that they focus on only one area of your life - the DO level. Many of us are living life with the focus on DO-HAVE-BE. “I will DO this thing.” (Lose weight) “So I can HAVE this other thing” (Self-Esteem) and I can BE this thing. (Confident.)
The average New Year’s Resolution doesn’t tackle the core of the issue – the “BE” level.
The best method for creating positive changes in your life is to understand and use the BE - DO - HAVE model. When you begin changing on the BE level of your life, then the DO level and the HAVE level follow more easily.
